Using our thermal comfort reports, building managers can have tools to see in real time the condition of use for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration or HVAC systems. This building systems are responsible for up to 60% of a commercial building’s energy consumption. All large commercial buildings have HVAC failures and much of the spent energy is wasted because of malfunctions in either the equipment itself or in the logic control systems.
Here are three use cases that our customers have identified as leading to overall better energy efficiency in buildings, on top of the immediate benefits that they bring in improved customer service and product field support:
Real-time condition monitoring – monitoring the condition of HVAC in real-time to only dispatch intervention technicians when necessary, instead of periodically. Condition monitoring can improve uptime and reduce maintenance costs.
Remote diagnosis – performing root-cause analysis for an HVAC malfunction reported by the customer by using data from the affected HVAC, before dispatching field engineers. Remote diagnosis can reduce site visits and improve first time fix rates.
